A Southwest Airlines flight from Phoenix to Sacramento made an emergency landing due to an in-flight fuselage rupture.

The flight was diverted and landed at a Yuma, Ariz., military base.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is investigating the incident.

The rupture caused the plane to descend suddenly and a drop in cabin pressure.

Passengers said a large hole tore the top of the plane.

No one was injured. One-hundred-eighteen people were onboard.
